Hi-Res Distinctions 4F de Télérama - Pitchfork: Best New Music
Through an amazing run of albums the Baltimore duo Beach House, formed in 2004, have positioned themselves as one of the most reliable forces in contemporary pop. This reputation is well deserved, and on their most recent record, Depression Cherry, they continue to lead music lovers into meditative, dreamlike states. Beach House have long had an obsession for classic 80s acts, borrowing the decade’s aesthetic by coating their melodic genius under layers of weightless guitars and rhythmic chloroforms… The shadows of the Cocteau Twins (albeit more sparse), My Bloody Valentine (albeit less loud), and Neil Young’s Harvest Moon (albeit less hairy) hang above the band’s universe. There is a sublime love of melancholy that unites both the voice of Victoria Legrand (the niece of Michel) and the lush harmonies sculpted by Alex Scally. This, their fifth album, is once again the perfect soundtrack to a waking dream; lush, romantic, and evanescent, it is musical sleepwalking. One might ask, then, have Beach House achieved anything new? Not exactly: Depression Cherry is more concerned with the band reaching perfection in their style of song-writing. Each of the nine tracks on this dream-pop disc is a marvel of construction. Magical.

We’ve barely had time to taste, appreciate, and digest the wonderful Depression Cherry, and we find that Beach House have released another new album! There were only fifty days between these two records! Thank Your Lucky Stars, the sixth album from the Baltimore duo, was recorded alongside Depression Cherry, but, as they put it themselves, ‘for us it is a very different album. All of the songs were written after those on Depression Cherry. We wanted those to be heard first by listeners, before this new record’. On first listen, one finds as strong a collection of songs as any disc in the Beach House catalogue, but the sound is much more lo-fi, and much less ample. It serves as a return to the duo’s early years… There is present the sublime melancholy that we have come to love in the voice of Victoria Legrand (the niece of Michel), and in the harmonies of Alex Scally, which seem much more intimate here than on Depression Cherry. The dreamy-pop of Thank Your Lucky Stars offers us an atypical minimalism, a real point of departure for the band, but the record remains just as captivating as its predecessor. © MD/Qobuz

It's written on the sleeve: B-Sides and Rarities. But this summer 2017 release is not just for hardcore Beach House fans, as the pieces brought together on this compilation give a good account of the talent of this Baltimore duo who specialise in dream pop. Like a nice introduction for novices... 2015 was a good year for Beach House fans. With two excellent albums just 50 days apart (Depression Cherry followed by Thank Your Lucky Stars), the sublime melancholy that is carried on the voice of Victoria Legrand (niece of Michel) and in the harmonies of Alex Scally offered a nicely varied palette of tones. The mixed bag suggested by the title B-Sides and Rarities isn't really what you get. Fourteen songs gleaned from across the length of their career, with in particular two unreleased numbers: Chariot and Baseball Diamond. " When we announced that we were releasing a B-sides and rarities album the pair relate, someone on Twitter asked, ‘B-sides record? Why would Beach House put out a B-sides record? Their A-sides are like B-sides.’ This random person has a point. Our goal has never been to make music that is explicitly commercial. Over the years, as we have worked on our 6 LPs, it wasn’t the ‘best’ or most catchy songs that made the records, just the ones that fit together to make a cohesive work. Accordingly, our B-sides are not songs that we didn’t like as much, just ones that didn’t have a place on the records we were making.. " © CM/Qobuz
